PSC-52LT Pyrometer

On-board Emissivity Adjustment with Laser Aiming

The PSC-52LT offers high resolution laser-sighted, fixed focus optics with small spot sizes. Optical and electronics parts are enclosed in a rugged stainless steel housing for use in harsh environments. Ideal for low temperature general purpose applications with dull surface materials. Temperature range from 0 to 1000°C



The digital PSC-52LT pyrometer with integrated laser aiming operates in the 8-14µm spectral range and is designed for precise temperature measurement of low reflective surfaces and materials.  Typical applications for this versatile performer include paper and packaging, food, glass and ceramics, conveyed materials, wood and composites, and textiles.  It is also ideal for rubber, plastics and gypsum board applications.

The PSC-52LT operates in the 0° to 1000°C (32° to 1832°F) temperature range with adjustable sub-temperature ranges.  It features a fast, adjustable response time of 100ms, and is capable of measuring very small spot sizes from 0.24” (6mm).  The sensor’s standard loop-powered 4-20mA linear output signal facilitates simple implementation into existing measurement and control systems.

The PSC-52LT can be connected to a computer via USB interface. The sensor’s parameters (transmissivity, ambient radiation, etc.) are adjusted through the operator’s PC, with the exception of emissivity. Emissivity must be changed utilizing the potentiometers located on the rear panel of the sensor.

The PSC-52LT is contained in a rugged, stainless steel housing with a sealed quick disconnect connector with IR sensor cable.  A heavy duty protective cooling jacket with integrated air purge is used for harsh environment applications.  A USB PC interface cable is optional and a full range of accessories is available.

PSCSpot for Windows software is standard equipment provided for storage, processing and evaluation of real time measured data.  It provides extensive statistical analysis of data, export of measured data as test files and creates Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.  The software also provides an integrated report function with customized templates for Microsoft Word and an integrated calculator for easy calculation of optics parameters.
